Continuing in the rich tradition of a Fortes Education school, RIS’ education philosophy has been designed to provide an education that fulfils the following six objectives:
Our school offers students an Education for Life – imparting knowledge and skills so students can develop their character, personal leadership, work ethic, compassion and values, and become thoughtful, confident, principled and dynamic individuals in the world.
RIS is full of opportunities for personal development, achievement and enjoyment. We have a holistic approach to education based on academic excellence, a diverse and strong extra-curricular activities programme, and personalised care to each student’s development. We encourage students to develop their strengths and realise their ambitions.
Empowered independent learning is a hallmark of a Fortes Education school. We cultivate in students a keenness to learn by thinking for themselves, asking questions and solving problems. We develop students into bright, free-thinking individuals who apply their knowledge and skills to the real world through inquiry, interaction and practical activity.
In developing a student’s ability to learn independently, we enable students to identify and develop their interests, appreciate cultural diversity and become life-long learners.
RIS imparts an all-round education through an inspired delivery of the National Curriculum. Our education emphasises internationalism and creativity, fosters positive self-esteem, and encourages the pursuit of excellence all within an enlightened environment.
Practising Fortes’ education philosophy, RIS’ approach to learning is innovative, enriched, flexible and inquiry-based. The curriculum model delivers the core subject areas of Mathematics, Languages, Science and the Humanities, providing differentiated learning to suit a student’s individual needs.
Our curriculum incorporates innovative teaching methodologies, regular assessments and consistent reporting strategies while constantly recognising and rewarding student achievement. While students are encouraged to excel academically, this is not the only measure of success. Our goal is to prepare students for life so they can achieve positive results throughout life’s journey.
Strength of character and inner confidence come from strong values that allow us to meet the challenges of an ever demanding world. Over time, happiness and fulfilment come from our social interactions, contribution to friends and society, and service to community. We come to learn that relationships within our personal, professional and community networks are founded on respect, friendship, trust, and acceptance of and service to others.
Embedding Fortes Education’s scientifically researched and proven “Education in Human Values” programme into the curriculum, RIS encourages students to develop virtues such as courage, honesty, compassion and humility. Students get involved in community activities, volunteering, and charitable initiatives. Students develop their values through various value-based school activities and a curriculum that focuses on building the foundations of character and integrity.
We believe one of the fundamental objectives of education should be to impart an attitude, and knowledge and skills so students learn how to achieve health and happiness in their journey through life because that is what will come to define their true success.
Continuing in the tradition of a Fortes Education school, RIS helps students develop the mindset and skills so they enjoy and achieve health and happiness in their journey through school and life.
As a Fortes Education school, RIS believes in maintaining links with our students and graduates, fostering links amongst graduates, and encouraging them to come back and share their successes and stories with our students.
Furthermore, we encourage parents actively engage in their child’s education as studies have shown that positive and productive links between home and school are vital to a child's development. We have an active Parent Engagement Programme providing parents a platform that enables them to participate in their child's education as well as campus life.
Our school inculcates in students strong values to help them meet the challenges of an ever demanding world.
